|Abstract:||Like most other muscles, the human masticatory muscles are controlled by descending signals from the cortex and other supraspinal structures, as well as afferent signals arising in receptors in muscles, skin and other tissues. However, the special functional roles of the masticatory system, and in particular the fact that the muscles on both sides are usually used together, has led to some special adaptations of function.|
